The Black Swan of Paris: A Novel

Another GREAT REVIEW comparing this author's work to comparing the author's novel to Kristin ­Hannah's works.

"Karen Robards takes a step away from her contemporary works (“Guardian” romantic suspense series) and delves into the world of historical fiction, crafting an engaging story that explores an often overlooked aspect of World War II lore. VERDICT For fans of Kristin ­Hannah’s The Nightingale, this page-turning novel full of suspense and excitement examines the lengths to which we are willing to go for our loved ones."
